Twice the size of Wales, the Dominican Republic is growing in popularity and it’s easy to see why...

"Luxury all-inclusive resorts dot the coastline; sun-worshippers and water-babies revel in the naturally idyllic setting, exhilarating activities, world-class golf and warm Caribbean waters."

Chock-full of sun-drenched beaches, gourmet dining and adventurous activities (both on the water and in the island’s mountainous centre), it’s also home to some of the Caribbean’s best value beach holidays.

In the far east of the island, Punta Cana is ready-made for relaxation; while capital Santo Domingo – particularly the Zona Colonial, with its beautifully restored monasteries and cobblestone streets where conquistadors once roamed, is well worth a visit too.
